Glen Drover Readies Solo Album, "Metalusion"

With the release of his solo debut, "Metalusion" (due out April 5th), guitarist Glen Drover, best known for his precision and power playing with Megadeth and Eidolon, "blends the venom and attack of modern metal and the technically demanding musicianship that defines the classic jazz-rock genre."

The instrumental, 10-track album features five original compositions and metallic- edged interpretations of material composed by musical giants Frank Zappa, Al DiMeola and Jean-Luc Ponty.

"Metalusion" presents a side of Drover's musical identity that the metal community has rarely witnessed, while boasting diverse yet highly cohesive tracks. "Each song should sound as though it was meant to be included on the record," says Drover. "Nothing should seem as though it's out of place."

Assisting Drover are a number of special guests, including Nevermore's power metal/prog metal guitarist Jeff Loomis, Opeth's and Talisman's axe man Fredrik Ă…kesson, veteran Steve Smyth of the Bay Area's Forbidden, Ohm's guitar hero, Chris Poland (Megadeth) and classical metal master Vinnie Moore of UFO.

1. Ground Zero Special Guests - Chris Poland and Vinnie Moore

Chris Poland's OHM Finish Second Record

Megadeth lead-guitarist, Chris Poland and his band OHM: have just finished up their second record on the Rotten Records subsidiary, Blacknote Records. While the bands first release had more of a "stop on a dime precision" and laboratory sterility, this record has more of a live, natural and organic feel to it. Recorded at the bands Glass House Studios, with tenured co-producer Petar Sardelich, this record promises to be the most innovative and staggering work that Chris has ever laid onto tape. Chris says, "This record is more like you would hear OHM: live, we just let the machines roll and we played…" A release date of Tues. October 18th has been set for this record.
